This Brazilian classic finally gets a proper US release one of the greatest psychedelic albums of the late 60s, and a key part of the Tropicalia movement as well! The record is easily the most tripped-out album ever from Gal Costa far more sinister than Gal's debut of a few months before. The session was still recorded with full arrangements by the legendary Rogerio Duprat (who'd worked previously with Costa, Os Mutantes, and others), but it also features a lot heavier guitar and a blazingly psychedelic feel overall. Gal's usually-sweet vocals take on a much sharper edge and the album's awash in the political power and cultural experimentation that characterized the best years of Tropicalia. Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil make a guest appearance, and also contribute some songs to the set as do Jorge Ben, Jards Macale, and Roberto & Erasmo Carlos. First time on CD in the US and newly remastered, with liner notes from Chris Dunn, author of Brutality Garden: Tropicalia & The Emergence Of A Brazilian Counterculture. Features the famous tracks 'Tuareg', 'Cinema Olympia', and 'Meu Nome E Gal'.
